step into your full power

I didn’t want to write a 2013 “hype” blog. There are enough of those flying around at the moment.

Yet as I find myself contemplating this new year and this new age and what it all means, I can’t help but have a renewed sense of hope for all of us.

I believe that it can be different. I believe that no matter what has happened to us in the past, no matter how many times “we’ve really tried”, that somehow, this time it can be different.

Maybe we’ve gone through all of the experiences of our life just to get to the point where we are right now. That we’ve needed all of those lessons, all of the heartbreak, all of those transitions just so we could have the growth to be the person that we are at this very moment.

You have wisdom inside of you. This isn’t “your first time to the rodeo” as they used to say in the record business. It’s about drawing from that innate wisdom to step into your full power.

“Step into your full power” – What does that really mean?

I can only speak from my own experience. I can only write what occurs to me.

For me, stepping into my full power is:

1) Giving myself time to be in stillness everyday to draw from the strength of the universe. I’ve realized that the only way to experience the infiniteness of myself is to completely slow down, step outside of time, and step deeply into myself. Only by drawing from this place, can I have access to All That Is Knowable.

2) Not hiding. At all. It’s expressing the things I feel called to share in an uninhibited way. It’s sharing “just as I am”. It’s allowing myself to enter the flow and to be the flow. Here I am doing it right now in this moment.

3) Self-love. This is a continual lesson that I keep coming back to, as I tend to be pretty hard on myself. It comes in the form of self-judgment, negative self-talk at times, and even doubt lately. I believe it’s about getting real about our doubt. At times, we all have that voice inside our head that says, “Who do you think you are that you can do this?” Yet, while I know that it’s just one side of my brain trying to do its job, sometimes I think that voice is real. It takes seeing that voice for what it really is to detach from the common doubt that we share, to align myself again with my true self and my highest vision.

And I guess that brings us to the central questions:

What is your vision?

What are your hopes and dreams?

Can they live in a new way?

These are the things for you to ponder. These are the questions that you can only answer yourself. The world is waiting for what you can give by embracing your true purpose.

How much longer will you continue to make us wait?

Now is the time to step into your full power.
